Seeraga Samba Rice Vegetable Biriyani Recipe

Seeraga Samba Rice Vegetable Biriyani Recipe:



Seeraga Samba Rice Biriyani has a special unique flavour associated with it. The speciality of it is very evident with its popularity. My husband likes biriyani with seeraga samba and he insists to basmati only for pulao & fried rice recipes. Given below is a no-fail recipe from my kitchen. Technically speaking this is also pulao because of the method. But the taste and flavour are similar to that of biriyani. So you can even call it One Pot Biriyani Pulao. Who cares about the name? Taste is the most important one. Am I right?

Vegeatble Pulao

Vegetable Pulao for Kids

Vegetable Pulao Recipe for Kids:

Vegetable Pulao/Pulav is a super quick and easy dish which can be yummy and colorful for kids lunchbox. There are several types of pulao which comes like a flash to my mind during morning hours and one such is this too. When I wanted to put on this post, I had a query on if it is fried rice or biriyani or pulao. Hence I went in to dig more about biriyani vs pulao. Biriyani and Pulao are two different dishes but to give the differences is pretty confusing. Biriyani is basically a dish made with pre-cooked rice and vegetables using layering technique whereas pulao is when we cook rice and vegetables together in a pot. Biriyani is time-consuming and pretty spicy when compared to pulao. These are the basic differences. The below recipe post has two attempts made on two different days. I didn’t have Basmati Rice in my pantry and hence tried with Seeraga Samba Rice during the second attempt. It was so flavourful and great that my little one wanted it more and more. But ideally, pulao is made using Basmati Rice. After reading about Biriyani Vs Pulao, I understood that we have been using it vice versa too at times. But who cares when the dish is just delicious 🙂

Vaangi Bath|Brinjal Rice-I am not a great lover of brinjals. In fact, before my wedding, brinjal was on my hate list. It was my husband who ensured that I don’t skip brinjals. I would only have Brinjal Kolakari  which amma makes for idly

Paneer Peas Biriyani Recipe:

Paneer Peas Biriyani or Paneer Matar Biriyani is a flavourful, spicy variety of rice made with cottage cheese/paneer and fresh green peas.I used the traditional seeraga samba rice to make this as it adds more flavour and fills the paneer peas biriyani with an amazing aroma.It is a deliciously rich meal.LO, and I love paneer & peas whereas hubby doesn’t prefer it much except for certain specific type of recipes like paneer tikka or peas curry in Kerala style or paneer biriyani or paneer burji.Last weekend I was badly craving for paneer and I made my mind to make some dish with it.And here is the result-Paneer Peas Biriyani

Corn Pulao Recipe

Corn Pulao Recipe|Sweet Corn Pulav

Corn Pulao Recipe/Sweet Corn Pulav Recipe-Corn has been my big time favourite since childhood.Only in the recent days, we come across the American sweet corn which is so fluffy, big and easy to cook.During childhood, we get corn(Makka Cholam) and all that we would do is pressure cook for a long time and eat after sprinkling salt or toast it in open fire and have it.In North India, the sight of cooking corn in open fire is very common.It is one super filling and yummy food.I would suggest you use the local corn kernels if you often cook corn instead of using American Sweet Corn.The below Corn Pulao Recipe was one of my earliest trials(June 2015).I couldn’t upload because I didn’t click a decent final picture.The below images might vary because of this.Come let’s check out Corn Pulao Recipe.
